(Newser) – Mark Zuckerberg is the latest celebrity to have his story told in comic-book form, the Christian Science Monitor reports. Mark Zuckerberg: Creator of Facebook is a 48-page bio-comic that label Bluewater Productions promises to be more fair than last year's The Social Network. The $6.99 comic book debuted yesterday, just in time to take advantage of that movie's Oscar buzz.

“Rightly or wrongly, Mark dealt harshly with some people on his way to where he is today,” says author Jerome Maida. “As we see, he left many people feeling betrayed. I try my best to be fair here.” One other tidbit: A production company has optioned the rights to the comic for an animated movie.
